Lead is known for being a principle material for gamma ray shielding, a need inherent to the nuclear industry. Lead is critical in protecting against radiation, which is present in both the nuclear and nuclear medicine industries. Depending on the strength of the energy exposure, thinner lead sheets or sheets of other metals such as cadmium or tin might be sufficient. Where the use of lead sheet is impractical, lead bricks and blocks provide a more versatile alternative. When more specialized services are needed, such as lead filling, lead lining, lead burning, and lead lamination to various surfaces, it is imperative to recruit a highly experienced and qualified team of professionals.
